Saturday’s Critters – Cats and Others

I got Covid the first day of this month. Bummer but I am quadruple vaccinated and in good health so I just stayed home and isolated during my recovery.

Our cat Lizzie would sneak upstairs from time to time to say hello. She is not a cat that likes to be held but she likes being petted.

So she would come and say hello and I’d give a few scratches and pets and then off she would go until the next day or so.

It’s one reason we like to have our critters with us.

And I’m doing fine. I didn’t have a severe case but I still have the old covid cough but have got my energy bike and am hiking and riding my bicycle.

I think we have more cottontails kits in the backyard. Mom has been hanging out under the bench and doesn’t leave when we approach.

It has been very hot so I haven’t felt like mowing the yard. They sometimes stash their kits in holes dug in the grass. I’ve run over them a few times in the past. Never injured them but I can’t imagine the trauma from having a noisy lawnmower blade just an inch or so from your head. So now the grass is really tall. I’ll have to face the music soon and mow it, and I dread it.

We continue to have midnight visitors.

I’m linking up with all the animal lovers at Eileen’s Saturday’s Critters. Go check it out.

    Glad your symptoms are mild! Love the photos and videos, thanks for sharing them. We used to have a lot of animals in our yard where we used to live but now we only have stray cats, sandhill cranes, chickens, and birds. I miss seeing the cows, pigs etc. who got loose and came to our yard. And once in a while a squirrel.

    So sorry to hear you had covid, but glad your symptoms were mild. This BA5 variant is very very contagious. My husband and I expect to get it but so far, so good–knock wood and throw salt over our shoulder—-lol

    Lizzie looked like good company!

    Alan – glad your symptoms were mild and that you have your energy back. (I get it that you are dreading the lawn – maybe this is the year to replace it with rocks?) It has been hot here as well, but at least we don’t have to deal with the humidity … Love your critter videos and photos!

    You have friends indoors and out!
    Glad you aren’t too badly off. I dread my JB getting it. It’d kill him.
    I keep avoiding doing our lawn from the leopard frogs!
